I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Winter Comes to Stafford: Stevensons NVT 452W

In the Peddle Era as well as updating with firstly Atlanteans and then many London Fleetline's new vehicles of all types also became a feature too like this grant spec Plaxton bodied Ford No.5 NVT 452W seen in a snowy Stafford.

Ah, memories of teenage years and Saturday trips escaping from the West Midlands. :)

I would have looked with interest at the Stevensons machine but wouldn't have dared get on as I would have been very unlikely to have had more than 50p in my pocket, and being used to Midland Red fares I wouldn't have expected that to get me very far!

However, I would have been quite happy to jump on that DP Leopard as I would have had an Explorer ticket (£1 or £1.10 child right 'til deregulation!), so that would have been an equally suitable alternative for me...
